Big Picture: Canine College

DVD Copied by Timothy Vollmer. With countless words being written on the Army's scientific accomplishments and its technological advancements, many otherwise intelligent citizens are inclined to smile indulgently at the idea of animals participating in our military efforts. However, the old and trusted Army dog is not only still very much with us, but he too has become a specialist -- complete with a college education. THE BIG PICTURE cameras follow Bendix, a recently inducted German shepherd, as he undergoes the rigorous, demanding, and character building training now expected of all canine combateers. Taking part in the narration, Private Bendix describes how he and his buddies are patiently molded into vigilant guards, tireless messengers, and loyal sentinels protecting our missile bases from trespassers. And so, ironically, the progress in the fields of mechanized and technological warfare which might be expected to retire our old friend has instead provided a new mission for him and insured his position as a necessary part in our national defense.
